Heads up, Sewists!

Now, you can make your own patterns!

If you’ve never tried making sewing patterns or given up on intention, then you’re in for a wonderful surprise. Most people start learning how to draft patterns from scratch, but professional pattern makers do something a little different. They build a library of base patterns and they take the one most suitable for each new project. 

Do you want the shortcut to your base patterns library and learn how to turn it into your dream closet? Join the Buddy Positive Pattern program!

You're not alone

If you're like most sewers or start-up designers...

 …who want to learn how to make their own patterns, then you’re probably tried or seen people draft patterns from scratch. 

That’s definitely a common way to make patterns. It allows you to create a pattern from your own measurements or from standard measurements.

But there’s a big problem coming up…

You need to create a basic block pattern each time you make a different garment or create it for a different size. You need to learn how to draft the basic blocks for each type of clothing such as tops, pants, skirts, dresses, etc. And this time-consuming process is only the beginning of pattern making. Then you can start converting the base block into the style you want, making several samples until you get the desired result. If you need to make a different size for a different shaped person then you start the same process over again from scratch.

You know what I’m talking about, right? 

 

Pattern drafting practice

Newbie, I can hear you!

If you're not trained in pattern drafting...

DIY dress pattern drafting

 …you might be used to making pattern hacks to create exactly the clothes you dreamed of. In this case, you are limited to the patterns you own or download for free. If you don’t have any, it can take a while to find the best one to convert to the exact style you want. If you make clothing or patterns for sale you might also not be allowed to use them for commercial purposes.

That’s enough to make you want to throw in the towel.

what the students say after joining the Buddy Positive Pattern program

" I feel more confident in making my own designs and more comfortable sewing. "

The process of pattern making is excessively complicated and with the course everything is simplified and you get a fabulous result without having to go through the tedious step of pattern making.

— Isa

I understand you!

Does this sound like you?

01

You have learned to make basic bodice blocks in three different ways to see if there’s a faster way, but it still seems too overwhelming.

02

You feel pattern making is way more complicated as it should be. You think it’s not worth investing in time and effort to make patterns for your unique measurements that fits.

03

You’re procrastinating because you think you’re not qualified enough to make your own patterns  for those great ideas you have in mind, so it remains like an unfulfilled dream.

But wait - it doesn't have to be like that

What if I told you there was a better way?

Instead of drafting your basic blocks by hand from scratch, imagine if you had a huge library of customizable patterns? You would just need to learn the essentials of pattern transformations and you would be able to create your patterns faster and easier?

Success Stories

5/5

What made the Buddy Positive Program stand out from other options is that it includes every piece of clothing you can wear. After taking the Program I feel confident designing a garment I like by using the online pattern making tools. I found the live Q&A sessions are great! They are essential to follow the course. What made me happiest about joining the courses is to add essential pieces of clothing of my measurements and taste to my wardrobe. I’ve got a better knowledge of altering pattern pieces and of checking measurements. Apart from learning a lot, the course will enhance your drafting and sewing skills.

— Ellie

5/5

The most important thing I learned in the course is using online pattern tools to design and assemble patterns and garment construction. I found the live Q&A sessions are very useful. I made a lot of progress. I actually got some garments completed. What surprised me about the course the most is the usefulness of online pattern making software. Since starting the course I think I can assemble most any garment with time and practice. I learned to organize my sewing studio to optimize pattern assembly, cutting pattern pieces, and sewing garments together.

— Freddy

And Agnes’s availability and involvement to resolve any doubts at any time. Since starting the course my sewing and pattern making process has been becoming more confident and having clearer and clearer ideas and a better sense of what I want to do.

Meet your mentor

Hello,
I'm Agnes Somogyi

I’m your mentor who helps you overcome the fear of pattern making and start creating your own sewing patterns with confidence.

I’m a textile designer, pattern maker, and busy mom who designs fabric, makes apparel patterns for brands, and teaches pattern making for sewists. I firmly believe that by learning the basics of pattern making and properly using the latest tools available, you can easily create your own well-fitting and unique bespoke clothes.

I want to share all my knowledge and experience with you in order to achieve your dream of creating your own patterns. I also know that learning is much easier when you are surrounded by people who share the same passion and desire to sew and make patterns so I created this program for you.

FAQs

You've got questions? I have answers!

The course will begin after you sign up and you can complete it at your own pace. The modules will be published every week, but feel free to take the course at your own pace. Students usually spend at least two weeks in a module.

Yes, you have a lifetime excess of class materials such as video lessons and downloadable files and minimum one-year access to the group chat.

If in the first 30 days you think it’s not right for you, you can cancel your purchase. You’ve got 30 days to get a refund.

Yes, no pattern drafting experience is required. You will learn everything you need to start creating patterns.

Yes, twice a month, you can participate in online question and answer sessions where I will answer all your questions in addition to the  group chat.

This course focuses on pattern making, but in most modules you will find video lessons that show the entire process from the pattern making, cutting and sewing the garments. There are also specific sewing tutorials such as sewing different pockets or button plackets, button holes and invisible zippers.

If you like your pattern making process, probably not, however if you want to learn how to make patterns with online pattern making tools by a few clicks you are very welcome to the program. I have tested these tools for years, so I’ll share what works and what does not so that it can save time on the process of trial and error. For beginners, I recommend designing simple clothes, but as you are more experienced you can make more complex and challenging styles for your capsule collection.

Some of the tools you can use for free, others will cost you a few dollars per custom pattern made based on your measurements. With these tools, you will create seven different basic patterns with these tools and then you can create countless new patterns from them for free using your new pattern making skills.

A laptop or computer, stable internet connection, somewhere to print your patterns and a sewing machine and serger if you have one. Also large size tissue paper, rulers, measuring tape and other common sewing tools.

It’s not necessary to use a serger, but it makes your workflow much easier and gives your finished garment a much more professional look. If you want to make clothes for sale I strongly recommend you get one. Maybe you could find a second-hand one.

Due to the lack of bespoke men’s designs available at the moment, we are focusing on women’s clothes however there is a possibility to create shirts and T-shirts for men with the tools we use.
